The Nhon Hai Island, just 20 kilometers away from Quy Nhon Town, in the south central province of Binh Dinh, is a beach destination with scuba diving and coral gazing as some of the activities on offer.
Tourism in Nhon Hai is well developed, with many hotels, hostels and restaurants. Increasing numbers of foreigners are choosing this place for longer stays to enjoy the warm and windy weather by the beach.
The mushroom-shaped island you can see off the coast of Nhon Hai is just five minutes away on a canoe. A three hour stay on the Hon Kho Beach, which is great for bathing, swimming and water sports, costs VND180,000 ($7.7).
Nhon Ly is another tourist attraction at Quy Nhon that is about 18 kilometers from Nhon Hai. Nhon Ly is well known for the Eo Gio Straits, which boasts pristine, majestic landscapes.
